Actually, I don't believe any amount of comments is going to slow down CF
any. Of course, if you put in 10k of comments that may be different, but
even _very_ verbose comments should have little to no impact on how fast CF
parses the template. As it stands, after it parses it once, it doesn't need
to create the pcode again.
